They're Here-A Close Encounter With A Whitetail Fawn

My favorite whitetail doe was still pregnant on Saturday morning, but that evening she came to the meadow with sunken flanks, so I knew the important event had happened. I did have an encounter with the fawn later that evening, which I will share at a later date.

After she left the meadow this morning I walked an old roadway nearby and spied her walking up the road with a fawn. I took several photos, but the best was when it walked to the side of the road and posed at the base of the tree. As usual light levels were very low in the wooded area and I had to use ISO 800 with the 70-200mm 2.8.


2 Day Old Whitetail Fawn

Due to a busy schedule I will be unable to post or visit your blogs again until the end of the week.

Don't think you could have asked for a better subject, better pose and better background. Just one beautiful image, Willard.
